1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Donald Trump Jr just got owned

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


This week’s trio of heavily redacted sentencing memos appeared to spell very bad news for everyone from Donald Trump to Mike Pence to Jared Kushner, along with perhaps Rudy Giuliani and Devin Nunes. Notably missing: Donald Trump Jr, though that may have simply been a product of the redactions. Even as we wait for the indictment and arrest of Junior, which even he reportedly thinks is coming, he’s managed to pick a more superficial fight and promptly lose.




Donald Trump Jr decided that he would do something entirely cliche by trying to start a feud with incoming Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, by hurling a disgusting meme in her direction which involved dogs being eaten. She decided to fire back at him in sarcastic fashion: “I have noticed that Junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up. Please, keep it coming Jr – it’s definitely a ‘very, very large brain’ idea to troll a member of a body that will have subpoena power in a month. Have fun!” Then things got weird.




The trouble is Donald Trump Jr doesn’t seem to understand what sarcasm is, or for that matter, how anything in Congress works. Ocasio-Cortez obviously wasn’t threatening to open a criminal investigation into him in retaliation for a meme. And as she had to explain to him, as a freshman member, she’s not going to have subpoena power; that’ll instead lie in the hands of the committee chairs.



Liberals and Democrats are still trying to figure out what to make of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. We prefer to wait and see what she does once she’s in office, before making any judgments. For now, the pro-Trump Republicans just keep dishonestly and disingenuously attacking her. You know what stands out thus far? She doesn’t start these feuds with the GOP, but she ends up winning them every time. This time around, Donald Trump Jr simply got owned. Then again, Junior is not the brightest; he thinks we can’t see his tweets just because he blocked us on Twitter.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Donald Trump’s Russia connections all keep tracing back to Mike Pence

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

It happened again yesterday, and for the second time this week. Yet another one of Donald Trump’s Russia-connected advisers has found his way into the center of controversy, and yet again, that adviser’s connection to Trump has conveniently ended up running straight through Mike Pence. Let’s talk about this.



First there was Tuesday’s Michael Flynn sentencing memo from Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Most of it was redacted. But Mueller made a point of not blacking out the part about the Trump transition team’s complicity in Flynn’s Russia crimes. In case you’ve forgotten, the head of the transition team was Mike Pence. That’s the same Mike Pence who went on to lie to the public repeatedly about Flynn being clean, when he knew Flynn was dirty. But perhaps that just’s a coincidence, right? If so, the Pence-Russia coincidences just keep happening.


Yesterday, former Trump Secretary of State Rex Tillerson finally resurfaced, and granted an interview to CBS News. Tillerson was clearly looking to distance himself from the entire debacle, explaining that he had never even met Donald Trump until Mike Pence brought him to Trump for an interview.


When Tillerson was the CEO of Exxon Mobil he had a longtime close business relationship with Vladimir Putin, and it’s widely assumed to be the only reason the Trump regime gave him the Secretary of State gig. Now we know that it was Mike Pence who initially bridged the gap between Tillerson and Trump. So is this also just a coincidence?




Yesterday we also saw Paul Manafort formally busted for having sabotaged his cooperating plea deal. Manafort is a bought and paid for Kremlin asset who was trying to use his position as Donald Trump’s campaign manager to get out of the financial debt he owed to a Russian oligarch. As a reminder, it was Manafort who bent over backward to convince Trump to pick Mike Pence as his running mate.



Each on their own, you could write these off as being mere coincidence or happenstance. But when you put them altogether and realize that Donald Trump’s key Russia-connected advisers all end up tracing back to Mike Pence in suspicious and in some cases criminal fashion, it’s time to ask why. Does Pence just keep wandering into all these Trump-Russia connections at random, like Forrest Gump? Or is Mike Pence a Russian asset? We’re betting Flynn has told Mueller all about it.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Looks like Michael Cohen gave up Ivanka Trump

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


Here’s the funny thing about the Trump-Russia scandal. Whenever a truly weird storyline or inexplicable clue surfaces and we don’t know what to make of it, even if it’s then forgotten about, it always finds its way back into the picture down the road. It’s happened again, and if you connect the dots, a key piece of the Michael Cohen sentencing memo suggests that he gave up Ivanka Trump to federal prosecutors.




Back when BuzzFeed first broke the Trump Tower Moscow story this past summer, the strange part was that Michael Cohen had reportedly gone through a Russian bodybuilder named Dmitry Klokov to try to negotiate the deal with the Kremlin. Even more strangely, it was Ivanka Trump who connected Klokov with Cohen. Last night’s Cohen sentencing memo reveals that the Cohen-Klokov wasn’t just some weird stray detail; it’s a centerpiece of the scandal.




In fact it was Klokov who made the instantly infamous reference to “synergy” between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. It was also Klokov who suggested that Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin meet in person in order to plot out this synergy. While there is no evidence that a Trump-Putin meeting ended up happening, and the plug obviously got pulled on Trump Tower Moscow at some point, prosecutors see the Cohen-Klokov connection as being so crucial to Trump-Russia, they spelled out in Cohen’s sentencing memo that he helpfully gave them information about it.



This brings us back to the fact that it was Ivanka Trump who connected Michael Cohen to Dmitry Klokov in the first place. This on its own does not prove that Ivanka was in on the Trump-Russia election plot. If you introduce two of your friends to each other, and then they rob a bank together, you’re only guilty of a crime if you knowingly introduced them for that criminal purpose. But it’s clear that Cohen gave up Ivanka’s role in connecting him to Klokov. Robert Mueller now has the details – and if there was criminal intent on Ivanka’s part when she made this introduction, Mueller will find it.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Everyone piles on after Donald Trump inexplicably tweets “whizzed by Da Nang Dicks head”

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


Now that Robert Mueller and the SDNY have officially accused Donald Trump of multiple election-related felonies, making clear that he is a criminal and that he’s not legitimately the president, suffice it to say that Trump is not taking it well. Yes, he’s insisting that he’s been fully cleared and that there was no collusion. But he’s also saying other things which are so jarringly incoherent, they suggest he’s completely gone.




Donald Trump posted a Twitter rant this afternoon which started off with “Watched Da Nang Dick Blumenthal on television” and got stranger from there. It took everyone a moment to realize that he’s attacking Senator Richard Blumenthal and not watching a rerun of a racist porn movie. Trump then went on to use the phrase “whizzed by Da Nang Dicks head” which went over about as well as one might expect.




The jokes came fast and furious, with respondents pointing out that it sounded like Trump was perhaps confessing to the Pee Pee Tape. He then went and posted the phrase “he then woke up from his dream screaming that HE LIED,” which was supposed to be about Blumenthal, but a whole lot of people pointed out that it more aptly described Trump himself. Finally, in case Trump hadn’t been inappropriate enough, he ended his rambling by making a point of flat out calling Senator Blumenthal a “Dick.”



This latest meltdown doesn’t merely read like the kind of frantic venting you’d expect from a criminal who just figured out he’s hosed. Instead it sounds like the kind of dangerously incoherent ranting that you’d expect from a serial killer who’s been caught in the act. The question of course is whether Donald Trump has slipped into full blown mental incompetence, or if this tweet is a blatant attempt at crafting an insanity defense.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Maxine Waters kicks John Kelly to the curb

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


Yesterday, in a development that nearly got buried in all of Donald Trump’s criminal chaos, we learned that White House Chief of Staff John Kelly is preparing to resign. We also learned yesterday, interestingly enough, that John Kelly has sold out Trump to Special Counsel Robert Mueller when it comes to the obstruction of justice investigation. That’s a big deal. But there’s another part of the Kelly debacle that’s also very important.




You see, John Kelly is a racist. When Kelly was Donald Trump’s Homeland Security Director, we saw him carry out his job in institutionally racist fashion against immigrants and minorities. Then, after he took over running Trump’s White House, Kelly reminded us that he’s also racist on a personal level.




Congresswoman Maxine Waters took a moment on Twitter to remind us of this: “John Kelly is one of a long list of failed & incompetent Trump appointees that served in a dysfunctional White House. Kelly leaves with a cloud over his head because of the lie that he told on Congresswoman Frederica Wilson. He refused to apologize. Leaves WH in disgrace.”



Even though Donald Trump will probably find a way to replace John Kelly with someone even worse, Kelly should never have had the job to begin with. It’s a great thing that he’s sold out Trump on obstruction of justice, which should help bring about Trump’s ouster sooner. But it’s also a great thing that John Kelly, unabashed racist, will no longer be in the White House.
